What I Wore to Work Today: August 16, 2016
Dress: Macy’s, maybe?
Loop Looks selected the Style Imitating Art piece this round: a painting she rescued from a dumpster, identified on the back as “The Door Within” by Jean Fetman. It’s a cool story, so read the details on her blog post.
Right away I thought of this dress, with the right colors and the brush-stroke abstract print. And hey, the garage door in the background is an accidental reference to the work’s title. I wore it to the office on Tuesday and then took pictures on Sunday minutes before a dust storm rolled in, as you can see in the bottom picture.

Cardigan, Sleeveless Top, Necklace, Belt: Target
Librarian for Life and Style selected this week’s piece, Una and the Lion by Briton Rivière. I find it interesting that the background trees looked much darker on whatever devices I viewed it on while coming up with ideas, resulting in the black foundation pieces of my interpretation. Just as well, I don’t have much (any?) brown, russet, dark olive green, etc. in my wardrobe.
I tried to get my dog in the picture to play the role of powerful lion or frolicking lamb and she was having none of it, disappearing back through the dog door.
